Filter Exchange · how to find sectors crossing 150DMA in last week

That was my original thought as well, but there are a lot more sectors than there are sector ETFs, and all but a handful of the sector ETFs are low volume traders, which can skew some of the volume-based indicators.

If you are just looking at the 10-20 biggest sectors ETFs are the way to go, but if you are planning to go farther afield then you could use the sector indices as well.

Not really - SF filters only return stocks, not sectors.

However, you could set up a watchlist that would be able to use the Dow Jones Indices listed here:

http://www.stockfetcher.com/help/What-indices-are-available/100229

In that watchlist you can add a column that says

add column count(close crossed above ma(150) within the last week,1)

this would give you a "1" or "0" for meeting that criteria.

I do accept payment in beer. However in this case I'm sufficiently compensated knowing that it helps you out.

I will say that you should be looking at some of Tony Crabel's N4 and N7 + inside day stuff (you will see that in the other post responding to you original question). My catch has been that while this usually leads to a breakout play, I can never tell in which direction.

None really. This was more of an observation that I put into SF code - I never really used it nor have I evolved it since the original post a long while back.

A blast from the past. You are welcome. Glad if it makes you some money!

/* inside day low/high*/

set{xtop1, max( high 1 day ago, low 1 day ago) } when would this EVER be anything other than the high?
set{xbottom1, min( high 1 day ago, low 1 day ago) } same issue - always will be the low

set{xtop, max( high , low ) }
set{xbottom, min( high , low ) }

xtop < xtop1
xbottom > xbottom1

high above 20

+++++++++++

Try something like this (this assumes I get the double inside day concept right):

Fetcher[

high above 20
average volume(30) above 250000
high below high 1 day ago
high 1 day ago below high 2 days ago

low above low 1 day ago
low 1 day ago above low 2 days ago
]



another approach is to look at the range (high - low) and look for a new low in that variable (implying a strong range contraction):

Fetcher[

set{range, high - low}
average volume(30) above 250000
range reached a new 20 day low
]



or try to combine them?

Fetcher[

high above 20
average volume(30) above 250000
high below high 1 day ago
high 1 day ago below high 2 days ago

low above low 1 day ago
low 1 day ago above low 2 days ago

set{range, high - low}
range reached a new 20 day low

]

SPY for December. I have already moved into it in all my accounts (did this in Friday).

I have actually done better percentage wise in my trading account during this past year, but over the long haul this is the way to manage larger retirement accounts like TSPs or 401ks.

Not trolling here, but I had noticed you guys seemed bullish on Dendreon last week. Hopefully you waited to pull the trigger.

I find that the results of recent trading activity influence me - I am more cautious entering new trades after a string of losses and more likely to be less cautious after several good trades in a row. That's human nature I guess, and why I try to use purely mechanical strategies as much as possible.

Not any way of which I am aware - you will get the total results of all stocks from both watchlists.
